Street Seats, Design Museum Boston




This is a fun program/art idea by the Design Museum, Boston. I spotted two of these benches on the Harbor walk in Boston. You can take a tour of the benches around the Fort Point Channel area in Boston. There are artists from 23 countries that have designed these benches. There is lots of great information about the project, artists, locations, etc.  Click here. It is a fun way of thinking about design, art and sitting.

Flyer Design, Dedham Guild





As part of the Dedham Square Artist Guild marketing team I am able to design many of the flyers that we put on the web, social media and in the gallery.

I usually don't like to design flyers. It is a little bit intimidating. How do you have an exciting image to attract a viewer and also have all the information needed?

I am always looking on graphic design sites to glean ideas and see the newest style in flyer design.

Flyer design is becoming so much easier for me.

Poodle, Groomer logo design

It has been a awhile and I plan to post here more. 

These are logo ideas for a Grooming Business and also a groomer of my cat, Milly. My cat is very fuzzy and hairy and Jessica of FURRocious  is great with her. 

My client wanted to have a basic poodle with a spiky collar. She is a owner of a poodle named Gigi. The bottom logo is the final. My client wants to do a niche market of small dogs and cats. Business cards, Facebook, website and more coming up....
